ALERT:  VACATION BIBLE SCHOOIL 2020 Announcement

SUNDAY, MAY 24 SANCTUARY WORSHIP 
We are looking forward to worshipping with you this Sunday – and for the first time in a while, this can include being in the same room with y’all too! Your wellbeing is important to us, so we are trying our best to help everyone in our Cross family get ready for our return to on-campus worship services. Having considered the thoughtful guidance of many leaders in our community and congregation, we are asking each household “register” ahead of time if you plan to worship with us in the sanctuary.** This will help us ensure that we can provide a healthy environment for each of you when you arrive this weekend. Please find additional information and instructions for registering for this Sunday, May 24 Santuary Worship 
HERE. Thank you!

SUNDAY BIBLE CLASS LIVESTREAM! 
Sunday is Week 6 of Pastor Fraker's study of the Epistles of St. John. The Holy Spirit inspired John to write the Gospel of John, the book of Revelation, and three epistles. These letters bring dynamic grace into the lives of followers of Jesus, empowering us to love God more and love each other better! Plan to join us each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.

NEW STUDY FOR OUR BIBLE CLASS LIVESTREAM! 
Next Sunday, May 31, Pastor Fraker begins a new study entitled: A RHAPSODY FROM THE PSALMODY-A Brief Journey in the Hymnal of the Old Testament. Have you a favorite Psalm? Pastor Fraker will consider many of the Psalms as we explore them and receive from them powerful and blessed Words of grace, mercy, and peace. Plan to join us each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.

RETURN TO SANCTUARY WORSHIP SERVICES 
As we transition back into on-campus Worship, we continue to do so seeking the registration of those who intend to attend. Please go to crossnbtx.eventbrite.com to register. Thank you! And remember: If you are age 65 and older, with conditions and/or symptoms that make you vulnerable and susceptible, it is recommended that you refrain from coming to Worship at this time.
